Difference between Latency and throughput?
What is the difference between Response time and Latency?
How Latency is measured? Explain me with the help of an example.
Your Response would be appreciated
Re: Difference between Latency and throughput?
Response Time - the time it takes a request to fully load. From the time the request is initiated until the time it is complete. This generally indicates the performance level of the entire system under test (web server + DB). This measure represents the average response time at a certain minute of the test.
Latency - time until first response. The time it takes for the first byte to be received as part of the response. This generally indicates the performance level of the web server. This measurement represents the average latency time at a certain minute of the test.
Latency = Response time - time of server reaction.
